Born in Rathmore, County Kerry. He joined the Jesuit order and taught in various schools. He joined the Gaelic League and was allowed to leave the Jesuits in 1900 although he remained a priest all his life. He edited the works of the four Kerry Poets as well as Céitinn’s Foras Feasa ar Éirinn. He wrote plays and novels including Cormac Ó Conaill and Creideamh agus Gorta. However, his best known work is his classic Irish-English dictionary. He is buried in Dublin.
